Open Access Week: “Open in order to…”


“Open in order to _____.”

That’s the theme of the 10th International Open Access Week, October 23-29, 2017.

In April, Nick Shockey wrote, “This year’s theme is an invitation to answer the question of what concrete benefits can be realized by making scholarly outputs openly available. ‘Open in order to…’ serves as a prompt to move beyond talking about openness in itself and focus on what openness enables—in an individual discipline, at a particular institution, or in a specific context; then to take action to realize these benefits.”

Loyola University Chicago Libraries join the international community in continuing to encourage the academic community to learn about and share the benefits of Open Access, and in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.
